THE BERLIN CONGTES.
The Congress is now fully under way. No one
is much the wiser as its secrets are well kept. But
the greater the mystery, the larger scope there is
for guessing and surmise, and all the London pa.
pers and cv.:. : Li'--. are l i j their full share
in this way. As none of their reports altogether
agree and in many respects are wide apart, it may
very well happen that sometimes and at some
points they touch the doings of the Congress. But
it is scarcely safe to accept implicitly their revela-
tions, and the man who shapes his course of life
in the full faith that he knows what Bismarck and
Beaconsfield and the other illustrious diplomats are
doing at Berlin, may find himself before long mis-
taken. No doubt the Editors of the "London
Times" and other leading papers have a second
sense which can shape and paraphrase the slightest
intimations escaping through the closed doors of
the Congress. They know so thoroughly the com-
plications of the high deliberating powers, their
aspirations and policies, that it is more of a conclu-
sion than a guess to follow the course of their de-
liberations. It is very good practice in making
clear what is unknown and unseen, and one may
accept the stately sentences in which the supposed
doings of the Congress are recorded without caring
very much whether they are strictly true or not.
It seems to be conceded that the Congress is not to
complete its work as speedily as had been supposed.
The sittings so far have had days between, and do
not follow very closely on one another. It is sup-
posed that this course is followed to enable the re-
presentatives to arrange matters between them-
selves, and in this way to limit the discussions in
the Congress. It seems further to be conceded that
the Bulgarian question is one of the hard points to
arrange. "In this matter is involved the fate of
Turkey in Europe, and whether the Sultan is to
retain power in Bulgaria, or if he loses it, which of
the great Powers is to succeed to it, is a disturbing
question on which agreement is difficult. There
would not be much time lost in disposing of the
Turk's supremacy, if the powers could agree upon
the successor to it. The English representatives
had urged the admission of the Greek deputation
to the Congress, and its presence had been allowed
in a consultative" character, but not with the full
powers of the other members. They can tell what
they want, and perhaps urge their claims, without
having a voice in deciding them.
The London Globe" had published without au-
thority the terms of the agreement between Eng-
land and Russia. Ministers had denied in both
Houses of Parliament with some apparent annoy-
ance, that the published abstract contained all the
conditions of the agreement, but their explanations
imply that there is not a great deal more to be told.
These terms are thought to be very favorable to
Russia, and it is claimed that to obtain the formal
submission to the Congress of the Russian claims,
Lord Beaconsfield had consented to allow nearly
all the substantial benefits which Russia demanded.
It makes more probable that the English represen-
tatives will be left free to urge the protectorate
over Constantinople and the general supervision of
the Sultan's government, which it is insisted and
not without reason, that the Premier is bent upon.
Everyone seems to expect some striking proposition
from Lord Beaconsfield. Next to Bismarck, he is
still considered the most influential member of the
Congress, and more than all the others, his name
and person attract popular favor and notice. It
was announced that he and the other first represen-
tatives would soon complete their work, and leave
the details to their associates. But the later inti-
mations are that the chief diplomats, like the lesser
ones, will see the Congress through, and not go
home until its decisions are finally reached and ex-
pressed.

cers of H. M, 20th Regiment, who dined together

GEORGE V. Ex-KINw or HANovER.-George Fred-
erick Alexander Chailes Ernest Augustus, ex-King of
Hanover and Duke of Cumberland, died on 12th June
inst., at Paris. He was born May 27, 1819, the only
son of the late King Ernest, who, though his son was
blind, arranged by special act for his ruling, all docu-
ments presented for his signature being ordered to be
read in presence of the blind man and twelve witnesses.
King George's opposition to Prussia in 1866 cost him
the throne to which he had succeeded in 1851; indeed,
his vigorous protest was only answered by the appro-
priation ot his patrimonial fortune. He has since re-
sided in England, where he was well known and much
esteemed.

The truth is that the internal workings of the Eng- 4 0"00 20 0'01

we believe that that will be forever, so long will the 8 000 24 0 030

ENDOWMENTS FOR CHURCHES NOT DESIRABLE. Total 4-10 Ins.


The endowment system does enable all to use GoD's
house, but virtually teaches not to give.
An endowment in this country (where lands are not
charged with tithe rates as in England,) means that in
times past charitably disposed and pious persons have
given to the parish, as capital, a sum of which they
would have paid the interest during their lives or abili-
ty. Thus after their death or removal, or possible loss
of property, the parish would continue to receive this
annual interest, and worshippers thereby be relieved, to
that extent, from the pecuniary charge of maintaining
the services and work. Now the performance of a duty
by others does not relieve us from the same duty; which
is, to give according to our ability. And of all mean
'and sordid things the willingness to enjoy the privi-
leges which we wish to possess at the expense of others
(when we can pay for them) is the greatest. Nothing
can be conceived of more likely to deaden spiritual life
in a parish, partly because we value what we pay for,
partly because the essence of spiritual life in individu-
als is the compacting" and edifying" by "that which
every joint supplieth." A distinct obligation rests upon
every member of the Church to give to GOD in the mea-
sure of ability. This obligation finds expression under
all religious systems in the "tithe"; and under the
Christian system it is not narrowed to the tithe, be-
cause it must exceed the righteousness of the Scribe
and Pharisee." It involves 'self-renunciation, and
places all, if necessary, at the Master's disposal.

AN EXTRAORDINARY CAPTURZ.-Captain Eakin
took possession of a trunk which he found in the hands
of two suspicious persons in Greenwich Street, New
York, on the 17th instant; which was found to contain
the following property: One white gros grained silk
dress, trimmed with trailing vines of artificial flowers ;
one pink dress, covered with silver gauze, pearls and
silk embroidery ; one crimson dress, with white silk
lace and flounces of corn colored silk ; one maroon-col-
ored dress with heavy fringe and black lace, one lace
overskirt, two fans of ivory and mother-of-pearl, inlaid
with gold and silver; two toilet mirrors, gold-plated
and studded with pearls and agate ; a number of silver
forks, spoons and knives, bearing a monogram which
the police refused to disclose; two pair of kid gloves
one vinaigrette, anda gold and silk purse.
The Albanians have sent a protest to Berlin against
annexation of their territory to Montenegro. They
are resolved to forcibly resist it the protest is disre-
garded.
The conflict between the Turks and Montenegrins
proves to have been simply a riot.


THEATRICALS.


The 'M1embers of the Amateur Dramatic Club
entertained the public with some more of their
popular performances last week, and without wish-
ing to carry them away with too much flattery, we
cannot help saying that they never before succeeded
so well as on this occasion. On Monday and Tues-
day the curtain rose on the Comic Drama "The'
Spitalfields Weaver." Capt. Grieve, as a self-made-
aristocrat, sustained his part to perfection through-
out, and Dr. McCutchan, it is needless to say.
again met with well-merited applause in his cha-
racter; though hailing from Spitalfields it does
not follow that he speaks the dialect, and though
settled there he. does not put on the cockney accent,
but adheres to that of his native country. The
difficult part of Darville was ably performed by
Lieut. Eden, and shows that he is quite at home in
any style of acting. Miss Sinclair as Adelle showed
great cleverness, and came out of all her difficulties
with her cousin with the applause she deserved and
which, we trust, is a good omen for the future, as
the curtain drops on the scene leaving husband and
wife, as they ought to be, happy." The second
two nights opened with a drama in one act True
or False"-(can that be the real name, for we
seem to recognize one very similar to it under ano-,
ther name ?) Capt. Grieve showed great talent as
Captain de Vaudemont, and with Mrs. Gordon as an
affectionate wife, completely brought down the
house. It is hard to individualize where all were
good, and on this occasion all the actors seemed to
be perfectly up to their particular parts. The
Royalist Lady was ably supported by her servant,
Lieut. Garden, who, en passant, we must be allowed
to mention has advanced to the very first place on
the stage. We hope this is not the last time Mrs.
Gordon will give the Bermudian public such a
treat as in "True or False." Capt. Farwell, as a
Commissioner of the Republic, showed the true
painfulness of those times in tearing the child from
the parent and two fond hearts from one another
The performances concluded each evening with the
Burlesque of "Fra Diavolo." We must congratu-
late the Stage Manager on theo way it'was put on
the boards. Where here th are so many costumes the
variety of dress was marvellous, and the different
scenes deserve great praise. The wily Fra Diavolo
in the person of Lieut. Eden was very coaxing,
and it was not to be wondered at that Lady Alleash
(Sergt. Carter) well nigh tripped. Lord Allcash
sustained his character well, and it would have
been hard if Fra Diavolo with his accomplices,
Beppo and Giacomo, had succeeded. The Brigand,
part was well carried out by Sergt.-Major Craus-
by and Ashford, and the way they acted it, deserve
the applause they got. Capt. Grieve again ap-
peared on the stage, and showed that he could ap-
preciate beauty in the person of Zerlina, who he
made love to right well. But we have not yet
alluded to Matteo, the Jolly Landlord, who Lieut.
Beauchamp personated to perfection, and looked as
if he was really one and not acting.
We hope the hot season will not put an end to
these pleasurable entertainments, and that Captain
Grieve may soon put another piece on the boards,
supported by so good a company.
The musical arrangements on each evening were
under the direction of Mr. Campbell, the very effi-
cient Bandmaster of the Regiment, and as usual
were most gratifying.

An Inquest was held at the Station Hospital,
St. George's, on the 20th instant, before Denis
Tucker, Esqr., Coroner, on view of the body of
Ephraim Atkins, late private in H. M. 1-19th
Regt., who was instantly killed at Convict Bay,"
on the morning of the above date, by a piece of
timber falling on him while he was assisting three
other men to remove said piece of timber from a
dray. From Ithe evidence brought before the
Court the Jurors found that the cause of death
was purely accidental.

LORD BEACONSFIELD. A Letter from London,
June 8, says :-" A great crowd assembled this after-
noon to see Lord Beaconsfield off to Berlin. I look
upon this journey as pretty nearly the most daring
step he has ever taken. If he should fail he will come
back discredited and with the public belief in him rude-
ly shaken. On the other hand, should he succeed, he
will have accomplished the greatest triumph ever a-
chieved by an English minister. For war was at one
time a mere fjuestio of hours, and nothing averted it
but the firmness and courage of the Prime Minister.
That summons of the Sepoys to Europe was a stagger-
ing blow for Russia.- It revealed to her possibilities of
which she had literally never dreamt before. Prompt.
ly upon that the Premier made overtures towards a
friendly settlement. There was no danger then that
they would be ascribed to weakness or fear. The op-
portunity of escape was eagerly seized by Russia, and
now I have no doubt that it is secretly understood by
the great powers that peace can be and will be made.
Of course, however, accidents might happen, and Lord
Beaconsfield takes a certain risk' in going to Berlin.
The chances are immensely in favor of his success.

THE KAFFIR WAR.
The latest intelligence is as follows:-
CAPETOWN, May 14.-An engagement took place
in the Pirie Bush on the 8th, Capt. M'Naughton,
Corporal M'Cabe and Private Davies, of Carring-
ton's Horse, three soldiers and thirteen Fingoes
being killed. Capt. Whalley, also of Carrington's
Horse, was wounded. The fighting was continued
the following day, and on Thursday it was found
that the enemy had made good their retreat into
the Dohne. The attack upon the rebels in the
Pirie Bush was a concerted movement. One col-


umn, under Col. Wood, advanced from the Kabula
River; a second, under Col. Degaaher, moved up
by Col. Wood's path; a third column, under Com-
mandant von Linsingen, ascended a little to the
left of the last column; and a fourth, under Major
Buller, descended from Mount Kempt. The num-
ber of rebels seen was estimated at 600. Opera-
tions were continued in the Bushy country, to
which the enemy had fled. On Sunday, the 12th,
Commandant von Linsingen's and Lonsdale's forces
had an engagement with the enemy in the Zulaba
district. Linsingen's force killed thirty-eight and
Lonsdale's fifty-four of the enemy. Several Kaffir
women surrendered. The loss on the British side
was two Fingoes killed and five wounded. Capt.
Austen, 24th Regt., was brought into King Wil-
liam's Town on the 10th slightly wounded. It is
again stated the Pandoes show signs of uneasiness.
The Galeka chief Ngubo and six of his followers
have been captured, and are safely lodged at King
William's Town. The official telegram reporting
this capture says that Ngubo, next to Kreli, was at
the head of the war party, and chiefly responsible
for the present troubles. It was he who attacked
the Gwadana Fingoes at the beginning of the war.
It is thought his capture will dishearten the Ga-
lekas. The latest telegrams from the Transvaal
report that 200 troops entered Leydenburg on the
30th ult. A fort has been built at Tameluke, and
Capt. Clarke, with fifty volunteers and forty Zulus,
is prepared for an attack. The chief Umsoet is
expected with a large contingent. Capt. Deventer
is dead.

THE ST. JOHN FIRE.-St. John, N.B., June 19.-
Since the great fire a year ago 860 buildings :have
been erected, and are valued at over 84,000,000.
The Relief Society received during the year $372,-
000 and expended on the destitute $205,000. Be-
sides this $50,000 sent from England has been dis-
tributed. Other contribu4ions of money and goods
increase the expendiLures $500,000. There is
still much destitution and ite balance on hand is
being reserved for the coming winter,


I


DEPARTURE OF THE EOTHEN.
The Long Journey to Search for Franklin Relies
Begun.
The schooner Eothen, with the exploring party to
search for relics of Sir John Franklin, after repeat-
ed delays, finally sailed yesterday.
The Eothen is a small craft, and though pro-
nounced seaworthy, looks like an ancient and
much-battered whaler. The party went aboard of
her and inspected the cabin in sections, as it was
so small that not more than a half dozen could re-
main in it at once. Here the last farewells were
said to Lieutenant Schwatka, who is to command
the exploring party, to Colonel W. P. Gilder, who
is to act as its historian, and to Esquimaux Joe, the
guide, who is a sort of Polar Ulysses--a man of
small stature but large experience in Arctic ad-
venture.
The incidents of Sir John Franklin's last expedi-
tion, the misfortunes of the survivors of the original
force until they left the cairn at which they "in-
tended proceeding on the morrow to the Great Fish
River," and* the many efforts to discover the final
fate of the party, are all matters of familiar history.
Recently the interest in the subject has been re-
newed by reports that an unvisited tribe of Esqui-,
maux has the relics of those persons who were the
last to perish. The present expedition is intended
to reach that tribe. The Eothen is to proceed as
rapidly as possible to Whale Point, Hudson's Bay,
where a number of Esquimaux will be engaged. It
is expected that the vessel will Winter in Repulse
Bay, and after the expeditionary party starts in the
Spring, the vessel will be used in whaling until the
time comes to meet the land party. The searching
party consists of Lieutenant Schwatka, Colonel
Gilder, Joseph Eberling, Henry W. Klutschak and,
Francis Melms.

LINES ON THE DEATH OF MY MOTHER
C--G-
May I not weep when sorrows spell,
Around my heart is thrown ?
When her I loved, alas! too well,
Has left me now alone ?
May I not not weep, when her I love,
Away from earth has flown ?
And gone to dwell with Saints above,
Nor think I weep alone ?
May I not weep, when now I hear
No more, a Mother's tone?
When she my bosom friend so dear,
Has left me now alone ?
Farewell Mother, deep and lowly,
Rest thee on thy bed of clay
Kindred Spirits, Angel's holy,
Bore thy heavenward soul away.
Sad we gave thee, to the number,
Laid in yonder stoney walls;
And above thy peaceful slumber,
Many a shower of sorrow falls.
Farewell Mother! soon we'll meet thee ;
Where no cloud of sorrow rolls,
For glad tidings float how sweetly,
From the glorious land of souls.

CLOSE OF THE SESSION OF CONGRESS.
The business of the Session of the United Con-
gress was adjourned sine die at 7 o'clock on the
morning of the 2Cth, the closing is thus described
by the New York Telegraph's, Washington Corres-
pondent :-Gradually the throng melted out from
the galleries, and by two o'clock they were almost
deserted. Half an hour later, while the roll was
being called, the Speaker ordered it to be suspend-
ed in order to have the time of the final adjourn-
ment extended. The House was in so great disor.
der that it was utterly impossible for business to be
transacted. The Speaker had pounded his desk un-
til be had made a hole in it. The Sergeant-at-
Arms went repeatedly about the hall bearing the
mace, but the members remained in their seats only
while he was near them. As he passed through the
aisles he was pelted with loose documents and paper
wads. In the midst of the confusion Mr. Clymer
and several others moved a recess, but the acting
Speaker refused to recognize them and they pro-
posed to appeal, but no appeal was entertained."

of President Hayesin his office were among the final

Assassination in Japan.-The Senior Imperial
Councillor and Minister of the Home Department
of Japan was assassinated on May 14. He was at.
tacked by six men while riding from his residence
to the palace at eight o'clock in the morning. The
murderers selected an unfrequented part of the
route, cut down the horses, killed the driver, and
slaughtered their victim as he sprang from the
carriage. The body was frightfully mutilated, the
face and neck covered with wounds and one hand
cut off.
For the first time within the memory of any
living physician in London, England, a death by
yellow fever has occurred in B elgravia. The pa-
tient contracted the disease on board a West India
steamer, where several fatal cases occurred. The
opinion of Dr. Murcheson left no reason to doubt
the nature of the fever.,


i man by birth and well educated, and was a teacher
by profession. The case is spoken of as the first in
Edinburgh for 50 years in which a man of educa-
tion has been executed, and the first on record there
of a unanimous verdict of guilty of murder by pois-
oning.
The sudden death of Mr. Wykeham Martin, of
the British House of Commons, while writing a
letter in the library of that body on the 831st of May,
cast quite a gloom over the proceedings and brought
them to an abrupt close for the day.
The case of the Maharajah Partab Narain Sing
against the Maharani Sukhao Koer and others was
lately before the Judicial Committee of the House
of Lords on an application for the reopening of a
former decision, which gave an estate in India
valued at 1,500,000 to Mr. Sing.

The Journal d'Hygiene is the authority for the

patient to inhale oxygen. Two Russian physicians

LORD DUFFERIN AND I!IS NEIGHBOURS.
Earl Dufferin habitually does graceful things.
The last recorded, that of his sending a personal
acknowledgment to the Barlow Greys" for their
attendance at the review on the 24th May, is one
of the most pleasing, and the fact recorded in this
acknowledgment, that he had written to Her Majesty
with his own hand, acquainting her with the pleasing
incident and the friendly spirit with which a United
States corps joined with Canadian ones in saluting her
birthday, is not the ,least important one. Her Ma-
jesty's personal popularity in the United States is
great, and the publication of this letter throughout
that country can do nothing but good. There is
no cause for any feeling but that of friendship
between the two countries, and little incidents like
this are most potent in rubbing off any imaginary
cause of distrust. In one thing Canada and the
United States can rejoice together, namely, in the
fact that the common mother of both countries is
Great Britain, and they can both pay the homage
of chivalry and affection, if not that of political
subjection, to the English Queen.-Montreal Daily
Witness, June 11.

MILITARY REVIEW.
The review postponed from Wednesday took place
yesterday forenoon on the Common, where, at the ap-
pointed hour, were assembled the Royal Artillery told
off into four companies, the 26th Company Royal
Engineers, the 1st Batt. 20th and the 97th Regts., the
brigade numbering about eleven hundred, being un-
der command of Col. J. L. Elgee, R.A. Shortly af-
ter half-past ten Lieut. Genl. McDougal, accompanied
by his Staff, arrived on the ground, and was received
with the customary salute, after which a careful in-
spection of the ranks was made. The Lieut.-Genl.
having returned to the saluting point, the brigade
prepared to march past, which was done in column
of double companies. The bands of the two regi-
ments, posted in front of the centre of the saluting
point, played the regimental marches of their corps as
they went past. It is needless to say that the march.
ing of the double companies of sixty-four files was
splendid. The leading company of the R. A. suffered
a disadvantage in having a dilatory officer on their left,
who, by not keeping his dressing, threw back that
flank. With this exception the marching would have
pleased the most exacting martinet. Quarter column
was then formed, the brigade counter marching, and
returned in mass of quarter columns. In this move-
ment it was noticed that the 20th alone went past with
fixed bayonets and shouldered arms, the other com-
manding officers apparently forgetting they were in
brigade. The brigade then moved to the right in
fours, wheeled to the right into line of quarter columns
on the original ground ; then advanced in review or-
der, halted and saluted. After a few words from the
Lieut.-General to the Brigadier officers and colours
took post, and the R. E. were sent to barracks ; the
line of quarter columns than changed front half left
on the left battalion, and deployed to the right. Af-
ter which the Brigadier, not being an Infantry offi-
cer, and having exhausted the prescribed programme,
the review was brought to a termination, and tho
troops returned to their respective quarters.-Halifax
Morning Herald, June 8.

A Chinese official, having been shown a thermo-
meter, expressed his surprise that the mere move-
ment of a thin thread of mercury could make the
weather so much colder.

General Sir John Lefroy, K.C.M.G., by Mr. Joseph
Zaehnsdorf, Bookbinder, of London, for repairing,
restoring, sizing, interleaving and binding the
Ancient Records of Bermuda.
The total expenses incurred by Lieut.-General
Sir John Lefroy for getting these valuable Records
restored and bound have amounted to 150 3/6;
the first portion amounting to 73 7/6 has been re-
funded to Lieut.-General Sir John Lefroy out of
the Powder Fund, but the resources of the Powder
Fund are now at a very low ebb and the Governor
trusts thereforethat the Legislature will provide
funds for repaying to Lieut.-General Sir John Le-
froy this remaining sum of 76 16/.
The Records are now in Lieut.-General Sir John
Lefroy's hands and he proposes to send them out to
this Colony so soon as the remaining volume of the

A Resolve for refunding an excess of duty to

House of Assembly and read the first time.
A Bill entitled "An Act for the better auditing

the House met.
Present-His Honor Josiah Rees, Chief Justice,
President,
The Honorable William H. Gosling,
S James H. Trimingham,
Eugenius Harvey,
Joseph H. Harvey,
James Tucker, Recr, Genl.
A Bill entitled "An Act for raising a Revenue
for the support of the Government of these Her
Majesty's Islands and to appropriate certain sums
to the discharge of the expenses of Government as
therein expressed," was brought up from the House
of Assembly and read the first time.
The following message from His Excellency the
Governor was presented by His Excellency's Pri-
vate Secretary:
(No. 11.)
R. M. LAFFAN,
Major-General,
Governor and Commander-in-Chief.
|The Governor has the honor to forward to the
Honble the Legislative Council an account amount-
ing to 30 16/1 furnished by the Crown Agents
for the Colonies for stationery supplied for the use
of the Colonial Secretary's Office of this Colony,
and another account amounting to 11 3/9 tor
stationery supplied to the Receiver General's De-.
partment-together with an account amounting to
3 13/8 for freight of both these supplies.
The Governor trusts that the Legislature will


provide funds for the payment of these accounts.
On enquiry the Governor finds that until the
year 1874 it was the practice to obtain all supplies
of stationery for the Public Offices here in Bermuda
that but in December 1874 and again in July 1876
the stationery required for the service of the Colonial
Secretary's Office was obtained from England
through the Crown Agents for the Colonies, by
which it is stated that the quality of the stationery
,'js found to be improved and the cost materially
finished owing to th3 peculiar facilities which
!the Crown Agent for the Colonies possess for ob-
taining supplies at lower rates than those charged
to the general public.
When the supplies of stationery were obtained on
the spot the accounts were submitted for examina-
atioD to the committee of contingent accounts, and
provision for these payments was made by the
Legislature in the usual manner.
The Governor has been unable clearly to ascer-
tain under what authority the cost of the supplies
furnished by the Crown Agents in 1874 and 1876
were paid as the accounts for those supplies do not
appear to have been submitted to the examination
of the Committee of Contingent Accounts or pro-
vided for by any vote or Resolve of the Legislature
and the Officer who held the post of Receiver Gen.
eralat the time these payments were made is no
longer in the service of the Colony.
The Governor presumes, however, that these pay-
ments were made under proper authority as no ob-
jection seems to have been made to them by any
audit committee.
Mount Langton, 21st June, 1878.
The Resolve for refunding an excess of duty to
T. S. Reid, Esqr., was read the second time.
The House went into Committee thereon.

I am directed by the Legislative Council respect-
fully to request that Your Excellency will be pleased
to furnish the Legislative Council with such infor-
mation relative to the importation by Mr. T. S. Reid
by the Sir G. F. Seymour in November, 1876, as
Your Excellency may be able to procure from the
Head of the Revenue Department.

The Comittee rose, reported progress and obtain-
ed leave to sit again.
TheHon. J. H. Trimingham moved that the rule

Islands and to appropriate certain sums to the dis-.

expressed," be now read the second time.
The Bill was then read the second time.

bly with the following message-the same to be
delivered by the Hon. W. H. Gosling :-

ADJOURNMENT OF CONGRESS.
The second session of the Forty-first Congress
at last came to an end at an early hour this morn-
ing. The scenes were similar to those usually wit-
nessed on such occasions at the Capitol. Crowds
of spectators filled the galleries, corridors and
other portions of the vast building, remaining for
the most part until the last vote was taken and the
gavels of the presiding officers announced that the
end had come. As a rule the House succeeded in
maintaining a pretty fair degree of order, although
the tumult at one time became so great that the in-
terference of the Sergeant-at-Arms with his mace
was found to be necessary. Members, however,
kept their tempers pretty well, and the occasional
disturbances that took place were free from bitter-
ness and passion. Taken all in all the last hours of
the session were marked by good humor and good
nature. The Sundry Civil bill passed was, of
course, a compromise. There was a difference of
nearly five millions of dollars between the House


and the Senate, and nothing was left for the con-
ference committee but to split the difference, in
which shape the bill went through. This is crude
and deplorable legislation, but when an important
bill of this character is left to -the last moments of
the session any other result is scarcely possible.

England has treated Russia with a considerate
generosity, and belthe results of the Berlin Confer-
ence what they may, the whole, when calmly
reviewed, will redound to the honour and credit of
England. Salisbury is again a Representative in
a very different capacity and under very altered cir-
cumstances from the time when he sat at Constanti-
nople. Beaconsfield, who deserves wellof his country
whose political critics even half allow him credit,
for the results seemingly at hand, intheir disappro-
val of his bold autocratic strokes of policy, sits as
his support, and the positive requirements of Eng-
land, so expressed, have a significance compared
with Constantinople, as realities tomere shadows.


From the West Indies and Demerara.
The R. M. Steamer Beta, Captain Shaw, arrived
at St. Georges, from St. Thomas, on Sunday even-
ing. The Mails brought by her were at the Post
-Office in Hamilton, at 11 o'clock same evening.
The Beta left St. Thomas at 10 a.m. Thursday.
steamed slowly until Saturday, anchored in St.
Georges, 8 p.m. on Sunday. On Saturday and
Sunday, with no breeze to fan the fires, she aver-
aged 11 knots per hour.
We are in receipt of our asual exchange files by
her.
SThe Steamer Tasmanian went on shore on the
29th May, on the southern entrance of the Harbor
of Ponce, Porto Rico, and it is feared she will be
wrecked. On the 30th she had 4 feet of water in
her hold.

When the Black Sea navigation was reopened the
Russians gave large orders for coal deliverable at
Odessa and Galatz. They are now endeavoring to
annul many of these contracts. This is interpreted as
a peaceful indication.


[ Written expressly for the Bermuda Rogal Gazette.]
SALISBURY AT CONSTANTINOPLE,
vs.
SALISBURY AT BERLIN.
We have before us two historical pictures in the
person of Lord Salisbury attending the Conference
at Constantinople and that of Berlin now in ses-
sion, the events of the intervening eighteen months
having produced material changes. We do not to-
day purpose drawing sketches to shew the great
contrasts, but rather to suggest a few thoughts
which will enable our readers to complete the out-
line for themselves. The sympathies of the gene-
rous hearted English Nation were in the autumn of
1876, adroitly turned aside to look upon Bulgarian
horrors in detestation, and, against our traditional
policy," to connive at Russian ambition in her
designs on Turkey. The war between Turkey
and her vassal principalities were merely intention-
al preludes to a huge tragedy prepared for the
Diplomatic stage whereon Turkey was to be the
dissolving scene in the drama. England did not
feel inclined to undertake sacrifices to sustain the
Turkish Empire.- which had so sadly fallen short of
the expectations raised by the Crimean War. The
cunning Ignatieff, knowing the infatuation of the
Turk and the enmity between the two races, (the
Turks placing reliance on England being so politi-
cally fettered as to be compelled to come to their
aid), and knowing also the division of opinion in
England, the forced neutrality of France, joined in
a secret partnership with Germany and partially
with Austria, as the vascillating selfishness of that
country suited her own immediate purposes. Here
was a glorious triumvirate to rule Europe, and,
the World, shattered a little, by England's reject-
ing the Berlin Memorandum, again encouraged by
the keen judgment of the English people being
withdrawn in the Autumn of 1876 from the real
merits of the Eastern Question. For the moment
the firm moderates in English politics remained
quiet, closely inspecting events, the war party and
the peace party contending and nearlybalancing each
other in influence, so that the scales remained un-
turned. Then came the Conference at Constanti-
nople, in Deer., 1876, and Salisbury, leaning rather
to the peace party, represented England, with Sir
Henry Elliott, ,who must have felt the futility of a
Conference simply convened for DEBATE. As a bird.
of happy omen Salisbury sped his way Eastward,.
resting to confer with European Courts en route.
The firing of cannon, to celebrate the launch of
Midhat Pasha's Constitution, was the death blow of
the Conference. Russia was most condescending,
her demands were astonishingly small, even those
who differed from the policy of the Great Bear,
wondered at the leniency of the terms. The Con-
ference was divided, its recommendations were of
no practical value whatever, while there was just
sufficient dictation, in calling on Turkey to disarm
and send an Ambassador to St. Petersburg, to con-
firm the Turk in his obstinacy, and precipitate the
crisis which happily to the relief of Europe at last
came. The Russo-Turkish campaign is quite fami-
liar, and just before the crowning point of it-the
Peace of San Stefano-the watchful British fleet,
just in time, enters according to Treaty formalities
the Dardanelles, and faces the Russian forces.
The English Cabinet is consolidated, Carnarvon
retires, and shortly after him Derby, whose servi-
ces in the diplomatic drama will in time be fully
appreciated. Derby's defection, the readiness with
which the House of Commons responded to the
vote of credit and the increase of taxes, the general
endorsement of their action by the people, whose
eyes were being opened to the real merits of the
issues at stake, and above all, the summoning of
native troops from India for European service, shew-
ing a seeming confidence in the loyalty of the people
in India, and an appreciation of the value of their
military contingent, thus meeting Russia with a
strong moral weapon in the regions coveted by her
ambition, the preparation of everything necessary
for a campaign, at last awakened Schouvaloff to
genuine conclusions. His mission to St. Petersburg
convinced the Czar that the demands of England
must be conceded-to-have the whole treaty of St.
Stefano discussed, and the future of Europe settled
on a basis to be mutually agreed on by the Euro-
pean Powers-or that Russia must assert by
military force her;recently acquired Treaty rights,
if they should be insisted on. Austria had been
watching her opportunity between all parties to
profit as largely and as cheaply as possible, and
Russia and Germany were for a time vain enough
to think that the attitude of Austria would turn
the scale and force England into compliance.
But Beaconsfield's penetration and decision were
too strong to be thus resisted, and the Premier saw
that England alone could more successfully resist
an aggression on the substantial civilization of
Europe to-day, than she attempted single-handed
with more apparent odds against her at the begin-
ning of the century. If Germany supposed that
England had lost taste and ability for a campaign
she has been undeceived. If Russia deemed Eng-
land too divided in the great freedom of her opinion
to take anything like a unanimous stand, or that
so divided the country without an ally, would be
precipitated into a war unpopular and so coldly
supported, she too has been undeceived. If Aus-
tria supposed that her weight would turn the
scale, she too has been setjright in the face of actual
events. If the Turk blindly imagined that Eng-
land's supremacy in the East depended upon his
grace and favour, and therefore that England must
support him willy nilly in all his schemes, he too
has been taught a most severe lesson. England
subsists on the principles of right and justice,
what best suits her selfish policy, if you will so
term it, is the insistence as far as possible of free-
dom and justice in all lands. Her very insularity,
with her marvellous mineral wealth and central


admitted in a consultative capacity. As soon as the
Bulgarian question is disposed of, Russia's right to
Bessarabia will be considered. A German semi-offi
cial journal advises Roumania to submit to the
transfer.
The Third Session at Berlin.--Greece Allowed a Voice
when her Interests are Considered.
BERLIN, Wednesday, June 19.-The Congress met
to-day at 2 o'clock this afternoon. All the represen-
tatives were present. After discussing the question of
the Russian occupation of Bulgaria at some length, it
was laid aside and the question of admitting Greece
to a seat in the Congress was taken up, and it was fi-
nally decided to admit a representative from Greece,
deliberately, during the discussions affecting Greek
populations.
It is reported that the question of the simultane-
ous withdrawal of the British fleet and the Russian
Army from Constantinople was discussed, and that
it was indefinitely postponed, owing to a want of
unanimity among the representatives, Russia, it is
said, opposes the withdrawal unless Varna was sur-
rendered.
It is believed that Greece will refuse to accept any
partial admission to the Congress.
Gortschakoff Attacked by a Dog.-Prince Bismarck's
Dog Flies at him-Bismarck Seizes him in Time.
BERLIN, June 19.-During an interview on Sunday
between Prince Bismarck and Prince Gortschakoff,
the large Danish dog of Prince Bismarck made a fero,
cious attack upon Prince Gortschakoff, and it was only
through the herculean strength of Prince Bismarck
that the dog was taken off and the life of Prince
Gortschakoff saved. It is stated in explanation that
when the Prince becomes excited in discussion his
voice rises and he stamps his foot. Something of this
kind occurred during the interview with Prince
Gortschakoff, and the dog mistaking the eagerness of
his master for anger, sprang suddenly at the throat of
the Russian diplomatist. Happily Bismarck was as
quick as the dog, and had seized and thrown him
aside before he had fastened his teeth in the person of
the Russian chancellor.

Very Latest,
RUSSIA INDUCED TO MAKE SOME MINOR
CONCESSIONS.
THE BATOUM DIFFICULTY.
LONDON, June 20.-There seems to be little
doubt at present that England is pursuing a shrewd
policy in relation to the Peace Congress, and that
she intends, if possible, to have her own way to a
great extent, while keeping herself prepared for the
immediate future. The publication of the Anglo-
Russian treaty seems to point unerringly to this
belief, which is now very generally held in diplo-
matic circles.
Various Theories.-A geat many theories have
been broached as to reasons underlying this publi-
cation, and most of these have been rejected; but
if reports are not altogether at variance with th
facts in the case, a reason has been found whice
presents England in a somewhat familiar light. h
Preparing for the Worst.-In other words, the
publication of the Anglo-Russian treaty was made
purposely, and, indeed, with a special design. It
is evident that the rulers of England are not
altogether hopeful that the effects of the present
situation will be as satisfactory as might be desir-
ed; they keep their eyes looking forward, and
they are plainly determined not to lose an oppor-
tunity that may accrue to the benefit of their coun-
try. Perhaps they still believe that war is to be
the inevitable outcome of the future. In conse-
quence, the publication of the treaty was consi-
dered a good means by the British Cabinet of
preparing the public for the worst. This was done,
and the looked-for result has been affected.
Another Reason.-T'here is still another reason
underlying this important act-namely, that it
served to create a kind of artificial success for the
Earl of Beaconsfield at Berlin. In case of a crisis
the Prime Minister will be ready with other tactics.
Russia's Concessions.-To further Beaconsfield's
scheme various efforts have already been made,
For instance, Russia has been induced to give her
consent to certain minor concessions, which never-
theless, may have an important bearing upon the
general result of the Congress.
A Matter of Principle.-It is evident however, that
Russia has conceded these points ai a matter of
principle. The concessions are said to be a neu-
tral zone in Asia and the adoption of a special
compromise on the Batoum difficulty, left aside to
be recorded at the close of the Berlin negotiations,

THE TERRITORIES IN DISPUTE.
Dangerous Proximity of Russians and Roumanians
-Austrian and Italian Claims.
LONDON, June 19.-The Bucharest correspondent
of the Times says: The situation of the Russian
and Roumanian Armies is a miniature copy of that
existing about Constantinople. The Roumanian Gov-
ernment is certainly not disposed to quarrel with
Russia, but the feeling between the officers and men
of the respective Armies is so strongly antagonistic
that the proximity of the two lines renders unfortu-
nate complications possible."
The Times' Berlin dispatch says the Turkish Bashi-
Bazouks who attacked the Montenegrins at Kraina
were Roman Catholic Albanians wishing for embodi-
ment with Austria, and adoping the forcible means of
a raid to acquaint the congress of their desire.
The annexation of this territory by Austria might
be the means of compromising the Antivari contro-*
versy. If Northern Albania were Austrian, Antivari
might be ceded to the Montenegrins without danger
to the Vienna Government. The Albanians are a
steady, industrious, well-behaved race, as gallant as
the Montenegrins and more civilized. They might be
made to act as a counterpoise to the additional power
acquired by Prince Nicholas. No doubt Italy objects
to Austria possessing Albania, but there is reason to
believe that her objections are intended to usher in a
demand for the Trentino were Albanian occupied by
Austria. The mobilization of troops in the south-
western provinces of the Hapsburg monarchy is being
rapidly proceeded with. This time there can be no
doubt of theirbeing in earnest.
SCONSTANTINOPLEr, June 19.-The Russians are send-
ing reinforcements against the Rho dope insurgents,
who seem to be making preparations to take the of-.
fensive. The British fleet has arrived off Prinkipos,
one of the Princes Islands.
